A response questioning the use of the term "speaker" has been deleted while I was typing. Here's my reply for whatever it's worth...

Yes, "Speaker." The Standard Speaker carried both recording and reproducing styli, so it couldn't really be called a "Reproducer." The Edison catalogs always referred to this as the "Standard Speaker."

In the early days, even the Automatic was sometimes called a "Speaker." Here are two images from The Phonoscope which illustrate this:
